  Nanoparticle delivery of antibiotics for treatment of pulmonary infection
  Dr V Kett, Dr M Tunney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In respiratory diseases such as Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and COPD, the lungs are colonized by diverse polymicrobial bacterial communities.
  Seeking critical branch points in bacterial evolution with comparative genomics
  Prof N Saunders, Mr A Khan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a bioinformatics and comparative genomics-focussed project, seeking to identify the basis of speciation and sub-speciation of bacterial species accounting for the development of individual and independent lineages.
  Dissecting the molecular mechanisms of antibiotic resistance in bacterial pathogens
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotics make possible the treatment and cure of life-threatening bacterial infections. Since their introduction in the middle years of the 20th Century, they have added ~10 years to the human lifespan, and have become a cornerstone of modern medicine.
  Telomere length elongation following treatment with chemotherapeutic drugs. Aim: To investigate the mechanisms which leads to telomere length elongation after treatment with tricostatin A and azacytidine.
  Dr T Roberts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Telomeres are specialised structures, which are present at the ends of chromosomes and serve to protect the chromosome from degradation during cell division.
  Exploring the epidemiology and care of complex wounds in lower and middle income countries
  Prof J Dumville, Prof N Cullum
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complex wounds cannot be closed, for example by sutures, staples or glue, but are left open to heal. These open wounds, which include leg, pressure and foot ulcers, can be painful, at risk of infection and limit people’s health-related quality of life.
  Impact of hypermutable sequences on microbial elicitation and evasion of host immune responses
  Research Group: Microbial Genetics, Pathogenicity & Biotechnology
  Dr C D Bayliss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) cause multiple human diseases including otitis media, the commonest bacterial infection in children.
  Disrupting the regulatory mechanisms that allow hospital acquired infections to resist antibiotic therapy.
  Dr R McCarthy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The discovery of penicillin over 90 years ago and its subsequent uptake by healthcare systems around the world revolutionised global health and wellbeing.
  Potential therapeutic effects of natural products in Human Papillomavirus (HPV) related cervical cancers
  Dr H Ashrafi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cervical cancer is one of the most common types of cancer affecting women worldwide. Infection caused by high-risk human papillomaviruses (HPVs), especially type 16 and 18 are implicated in the etiology of most cervical cancers.
  The Development of a Tailored Mindfulness Intervention for Spinal Cord Injury
  Dr K Finlay, Dr M Tilley
Application Deadline: 9 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD research student to work on the development of a tailored mindfulness intervention for Spinal Cord Injury.
  Enhancing Macrophage-Biofilm Interaction using Non-Thermal Plasma
  Prof B Gilmore, Dr P Flynn
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to generate plasmas (quasi-neutral, wholly or partially ionised gases) at ambient or tissue tolerable temperatures has given rise to the nascent field of plasma medicine.
  Long-Acting Microneedle Delivery Systems
  Dr R Donnelly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microneedle arrays are minimally-invasive devices that painlessly, and without drawing blood, penetrate the skin’s stratum corneum barrier.
  Budding yeast as a model for sudden cardiac death
  Dr T Hoefken
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sudden unexpected cardiac death is responsible for about half of all heart disease deaths. It is an unexpected death caused by a change in heart rhythm.
  Central Nervous system Gene therapy to treat obesity Bardet-Biedl Syndrome (BBS). Analysis of the BBS brain development
  Dr V Hernandez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a debilitating, often life-limiting heritable multisystem disorder caused by dysfunction of non-motile cilia (ciliopathy).
  Egr2 and 3 mediated T cell tolerance in cancer and their impact in immune checkpoint therapy
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumour infiltrated lymphocytes (TILs) contain tumour reactive T cells and have been used as adoptive cell transfer therapy in patients which can mediate cancer regression.
  Nanoparticles in drug delivery
  Dr G Stenbeck, Dr U Kishore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanoparticles (NPs) are materials with overall dimensions in the nano scale range (5nm-100nm). Due to their unique physicochemical properties, they have found a wide range of applications and are currently explored as drug and gene delivery vehicles.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - The effect of fruit and vegetable intake on health outcomes: does an apple aday still keep the doctor away?
  Prof J Woodside, Prof J Lovegrove, Dr A Nugent, Dr B Green
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Although increased fruit and vegetable intake has been associated with reduced risk of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, this has largely been based on observational evidence, and there are a number of uncertainties regarding these observed links.
  Big Data driven treatments for Pulmonary Fibrosis
  Prof Gisli Jenkins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We invite applications for a 3-year PhD position, funded by the University of Nottingham to study ‘Big Data driven treatments for Pulmonary Fibrosis’.
